Welcome to our community partners page! There are four area sailing clubs which helped found CORA, and these clubs provide vital assistance in the operation of Sperry Top-Sider Charleston Race Week. In addition to a number of competitors, volunteers provide on-water and shoreside assistance, some of the marks we race around, boats for Race Committee, safety, mark movements and others. They help in food distribution and several clubs assist our guests in launching boats for Race Week. These founding clubs of CORA all have active sailing programs of their own with focus on younger sailors:
Carolina Yacht Club
This is the oldest yacht club in Charleston and is situated on East Bay with a compelling view of the Charleston Harbor. Summer races and a number of other regular CORA events are started and finished from their docks.
Charleston Yacht Club
Hobcaw Yacht Club
Located in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, the clubs’ waterfront lies on the eastern bank of the Wando River just upstream of the confluence of the Wando and Cooper Rivers feeding into the Charleston Harbor. See details on using their launch ramp on the logistics page.
James Island Yacht Club
The club is currently undergoing significant dock rework this year but continues its roles as competitors, race officials, volunteers and others.
